While the Suburban Lions Hockey Club name is new to WA, it comes with an enviable history of tradition, expertise and success being the amalgamation of two very successful clubs. Suburban Nedlands has a long history, being the longest continually operating hockey club in WA, after forming in 1922, while Riverside Lions had their origins in 1954. The merge into a single club in 2011 provided an exciting future with the potential for better facilities, a greater coaching culture and improved opportunities for all players.
There is plenty to offer players who want to play top grade hockey in any of our Mens' or Ladies' turf teams. We also field teams in a number of senior and masters grass, social and mid-week leagues. We also run our own Minkey (J1/2) and Cubs (J3/4) programs and field around 25 junior teams.
